Ask us about our:
Progressive Ethnic Meal

As a special tour not available to the general public, we’ve created a Progressive Ethnic Meal. This was designed to show off the city while talking about our ethnic past. This tour includes stops on German Old World 3rd Street for cheese, sausage, beer or root beer; a drive through Milwaukee’s Irish Third Ward; an entree at a traditional Polish or Serbian ethnic restaurant; and of course, time for shopping and dessert at one final stop at one of Brady Street’s most authentic Italian eateries.

It’s a progressive meal with a side of history perfect for your group!
